Crystal eyewear classic: Erker’s 1879

Erker’s have applied their unique craftsmanship in the creation of a first collaboration with Ohio independent

An out of the ordinary crystal acetate, absolute attention to detail in every piece of hardware and a quirky ‘turntable’ icon: a new and very limited edition from the US handcrafted collection Erker’s represents the first time the label has teamed with an independent store.

The limited design series, known as the Living Legends, are the result of a close collaboration between the co-owners of the historic eyewear company Jack Erker III and Tony Erker, and independent boutique owner, Kevin Kretch of Eyes on Chagrin (Cleveland, Ohio).

Erker’s have worked with Kevin Kretch, owner of Eyes on Chagrin, on a handcrafted edition called “Dawg Pound” – referencing the Cleveland Browns

The distinctive, handmade individuality of the frame and bold chunky dimensions are characteristics that pay homage to iconic eyewear design and the heritage approach of the family eyewear producer, while the special icon on these frames – the turntable – is a reference to the ‘Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’ – Cleveland’s museum and hall of fame on the shore of Lake Erie.
